Egg Farmers of Canada: A National Capital Region Top Employer for 2013


OTTAWA, February 6, 2013 – Following a comprehensive and rigorous applications process, Egg Farmers of Canada is exceptionally pleased to be named one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for 2013. This is the third time we have put our human resources and work culture to the test in Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition, the first time we have achieved a top 30 ranking among Ottawa-area workplaces, and the third time we have been shortlisted in the top 300 nationwide.

Canada’s Top 100 Employers is a national competition to determine leaders among organizations that offer exceptional workplaces for their employees. To be considered for this distinction, the editors at Mediacorp Canada Inc. evaluate competing organizations against such criteria as performance management, community involvement, training and skills development, employee communications, work atmosphere and employee benefits. EFC was also compared to other employers to determine the degree to which we offer a progressive and innovative workplace culture. We believe we are making a conscious effort to excel in all these areas. As a result, EFC benefits from a high degree of employee loyalty and engagement, as evidenced by low turnover rates and the service length of many employees. In fact, one of our employees recently marked 35 years with the organization.

Our Top 30 ranking is currently being featured on the National Capital Region’s Top Employers website. It was also highlighted in a special pullout section of the Ottawa Citizen on February 6, 2013. If you are passionate about agriculture, have the skills we need and thrive in a challenging and fast-paced work environment, please visit our Careers section.
